Fire Brigade said it was believed the fire started due to an “electric fault in the factory”.

However, the fire Brigade said it will still make thorough investigations on the matter.

The fire brigade rushed to the scene an hour late, when the fire had already caused a lot of damage, completely destroying the building.

They said the fire was not started deliberately as claimed by some.

Officials are yet to state  how much property has been lost in the accident.

    Fires caused by electrical faults or cemmicals require carbon foam materials to put them off not just water. 14 tins of carbon foam materials were used at this fire but the tins were not adequate. Carbon foam is very expensive and it is proper for chemical companies to stock it as a precautionary measure but also as a bylaw . Coupled with poor electrical wiring , lack of carbon iis always a recipe for disaster in such situations.

    To say the least, the fire brigades in Malawi is not effective. Something must be done. I can’t remember a time when these guys were called to a fire scene and came to the rescue of anything. This is deplorable.
